ARTS UMBRELLA BRINGS ON THE SUMMER FUN

Have you heard about “Arts Umbrella”? This is a project that has been made possible through funding from the City of Canterbury local grants.

Currently working out of the amphitheatre at Wiley Park, Horizon Theatre Company Ltd was established with the clear aim of developing a world-class repertory theatre company in Sydney’s west and beyond. We are dedicated to enhancing artistic, cultural and economic opportunities for a diverse background of marginalised young people and theatre practitioners whilst developing participation and a large audience. Horizon is a pioneer in arts-based strategies and aims to continue to provide regular arts-based and innovative intervention programs to equip young participants with alternative methods for early intervention and crime prevention. Finally, Horizon is a drop-in facility helping improve the self-esteem, communication, teamwork skills and creativity of our community.

The ARTS UMBRELLA project has provided access to creative and recreational arts based school holiday activities for young people living in the Canterbury local government area. It has been keeping them out of the sun and putting them into the fun. The project acknowledges the culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds of participants. Over the course of the school holidays, Horizon provided free tickets to performances. Including tickets for our performances of “You Can’t Steal Christmas” on the 20th and 21st of December.

Additionally, the Theatre will has been providing free arts based workshops in the heat of the day. Participants were matched to activities based on their individual talents, abilities and inclinations.

eMOTION

eMOTION provides creative and recreational activities for young people and particularly those living with a disability in the Bankstown local government area. The project acknowledges the culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds of participants. It aims to reduce social isolation by bringing young people from a diverse range of cultures and abilities together. Sport has always played an important role in young people’s lives. However, it is not of universal interest and may socially exclude a number of young people.

eMOTION is creating an alternate opportunities for these young people to engage in physical activities and experience teamwork. eMOTION addresses some of the key issues raised by disability discussion group at Bankstown social planning meetings such as the lack of day programs for people with a disability (particularly affordable ones) and the need for access to services by people with a disability especially CALD and newly arrived.

eMOTION is a project that is accessible to all, including people of CALD

Thanks to funding from Bankstown City Council we have been running workshops for young people including young people living with a disability. Workshops have included a mix music, movement, mime and puppetry.
